Ranil has served as a local Councillor since 2008 and is Deputy Leader of Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council, where he is responsible for the Council’s strategy and the regeneration of Basingstoke town. His commercial background is in financial services, so Ranil has a useful insight into today’s economic challenges, which he has brought to his role at the Council and hopes to take into Parliament.

He is an alumnus of the LSE and is a Fellow of the RSA which, amongst its objectives, seeks to enable people to take an active role in solving problems in their own communities.

On his selection, Ranil said: “I’m honoured to be the Conservative Candidate for North East Hampshire. I grew up here, live here and care passionately about our area. We live in a great part of the country but, having served as local Councillor, I’ve seen that we can make our corner of Hampshire even better. With the support of local residents, that’s what I’ll seek to do.”

In his spare time, Ranil likes watching cricket and tennis. He also has a real interest in local history and spends some of his free time reading on the subject, as well as enjoying walks in the local area, shooting, board games and the occasional trip to the theatre.
